Dave Chappelle has returned for his final comedy show on Netflix: Sticks and Stones. It is crass, unapologetic and for some offensive. Despite numerous pleas to remain politically correct, Chappelle challenges the notion that a comedian can't be funny within a culture hellbent on silencing people freedom of speech.
In saying that, Dave Chappelle, while funny at times, doesn't provide any fresh material but rather doubles down on recycled jokes to invoke outrage. This special proves to be nothing more than a man saying things to generate a conversation and headlines around what is deemed offensive and off-limits.
The sad state of comedy is that comedians have lost to be the ability to be funny or, perhaps the definition of humor is evolving for a generation that thinks 10 -15-second videos are comedic gold.
